Strategic Growth & Improvement

Think fresh, work faster, grow smarter, increase value

CEOs and their executive teams are charged with growing value in highly competitive, dynamic environments. We work with management teams to develop flexible strategies and the underlying rationales and data to unite and energize employees and stakeholders.

We learned a simple but challenging lesson early in our careers: Plan your work, and work your plan. At a high level, strategy is about opportunities and choices. We think the most important question to first answer is: Why? Without understanding ‘why’ a strategic direction is necessary (and the corresponding success metrics), an organization is on a road trip without a map. The ‘What’ and ‘How’ are more easily understood, much like the rest stops and automobile in the road trip analogy.

We assist you in developing and testing strategic alternatives, using competitive and SWOT analysis to better understand risk and return attributes. We tirelessly look for valid data as input for decision-making. And, we conduct an objective view of the organization’s ability to execute successfully. We evaluate business systems, organizational health, and the balance sheet requirements as needed. We recommend key measurement metrics to track progress of underlying plans and projects, to permit ‘fast learning’ and ‘flexible’ course directions. One of our favorite cliches: if you aren’t keeping score, you are only practicing.
